Stock No. : 0651

Bourgueil, France, c1810
Gold case
Verge movement


MOVEMENT : Signed verge movement in excellent, clean condition and working well.

DIAL : The white enamel dial is about 40 mm in diameter. There are a few scratches around 12 o’clock and some chips around the edge (hidden by the bezel), but generally good Nice Breguet type blued steel hands. The mineral crystal is fine.

CASE : The engine turned case is 44 mm in diameter (excluding pendant etc.) and weighs 66 gms (including the movement). The cover, stem and bow all have marks which I believe are French gold marks. The gold tests as high carat (18ct). The inside of the back shows an unused hinge so the watch originally had an inner cover (cuvette, usually brass) which is now absent.

All hinges are fine and both covers (back and bezel) snap closed nicely.
The engine turning shows some wear but no dents or damage. Generally good condition throughout.
